Welcome to Homestead Farm South. We are located in the Blue Ridge Mountain community of Pisgah Forest, only four miles from the entrance to the Pisgah National Forest and just ten minutes from the town of Brevard and the Brevard Music Center. Nearby sites include Sliding Rock, Looking Glass Falls, and the Cradle of Forestry. Also nearby is the Dupont State Forest, including Hooker, High, and Triple Falls. Other area sites include Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Carl Sandburg's historic home, and Flat Rock Playhouse.
If you are tired of tiny hotel rooms with heat and air that are impossible to set, noisy halls, the trip to the Laundromat when you'd rather be sight-seeing, having to eat every meal out, not having a place to store the fish you just caught, and all the other things you dread about a vacation, then this is the place for you. Leave home without leaving the comforts of home!
We offer a one bedroom, air conditioned suite in an upstairs apartment with a private entrance that accommodates up to four people. Completed in 2000, the apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with bathtub, washer and dryer, living room with a queen-size sleeper sofa, separate bedroom with a king-size bed and plenty of closet space, and a sundeck. The apartment is on a 22-acre farm with magnificent views that borders the French Broad River. Our farm animals include horses, goats, sheep, chickens, and turkeys, as well as Great Pyrenees dogs.

About Ken & Kim Burton
Homestead Farm South is named after Ken's ancestral home in Connecticut, Homestead Farm Dairy. When Ken and Kim moved to the mountains of North Carolina, they decided they would do something unconventional for a couple that had lived in the suburbs; they bought farm land and built Homestead Farm South. Ken wanted bison, Kim wanted goats and sheep, so they have goats and sheep, as well as a horse, chickens, turkeys, a donkey, and guardian dogs.
Ken & Kim Burton purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Ken & Kim Burton chose Little River
Ken and Kim spent many months looking at properties, and they fell in love with the Little River valley area. Ken found this property when a colleague at work told him friends of his had property for sale, and when his coworker took him to show him the property, it was exactly where he and Kim had said they wanted to live.
What makes this Apartment unique
Kim found the house plan and they made some changes to make it, including adding the apartment over the garage. Originally intended for visiting family and friends, or for a future Brevard College student willing to live there in exchange for helping out, they decided to try using it as a vacation rental at the encouragement of their contractor and with the assistance of a nearby B&B. It was a decision they have not regretted because they have had many wonderful people stay there through the years

really nice place to stay for weekend or weeks, if you like to experience real farm life, this is it!, our girls loved the farm animals. Brevard town, Dupont Forest, Pisgah forest are 10mins away, Waterfalls, hiking and mountain bike trails are all over the place.
Ken and Kim kee the apartment clean and nice.
Amazing . . . can’t wait to return!
From the moment we arrived, I knew I had made the right decision by staying here. We were greeted by Ken and all of his sweet farm animals. Upon entering the apartment, we were in awe of all the small details Kim and Ken had provided to ensure our stay was wonderful. We loved being able to walk around the farm and pet the animals. We even walked over and enjoyed the beautiful French Broad River at the back of their property. It felt like you were staying in the country, but you are only approximately 10 minutes away from Brevard. Also, we were very close to DuPont State Recreational Forest and the many waterfall trails there which we truly love. I would “highly” recommend this place for anyone to stay at and we are already planning our next trip!

The apt was clean, cute and comfortable. It was the perfect place for our winter get-a-way. All of the conveniences of home. Tastefully decorated, private, and cozy. Close to the Biltmore, Ashville and Hendersonville.

Great for the country life
The property met our expectations. We had a very good time exploring the area. The unit was clean, comfortable and well equipped. In our opinion it represented good value for the money. It is located on a hobby farm which added a nice touch. The hosts are welcoming and helpful. Directions would be best if they provided the street address. We would stay again if we return to the area.
Mark, we appreciate your review and feedback. We enjoyed having you stay with us and meeting your family. Our address is listed on the website, we're sorry you did not see it. In the future, we will certainly re-verify with our guests that they have the address. We hope to see you again on your next visit to our area. Thank you, Ken and Kim
